Biography | show moreshow less
Ben Gazzara is an Emmy-winning American actor of stage, TV and movies. His first Broadway role, as Jocko de Paris in End as a Man (1953-54), earned him a 1954 Theatre World Award. He went on to create the role of Brick in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955-1956) and star in A Hatful of Rain (1955-1956); both of these roles were played by other actors in the film adaptations. However, Gazzara was recast as Jocko Paris in the 1957 film adaptation of End as a Man, one of his first movie roles, and he managed to steal scenes from Jimmy Stewart in Anatomy of a Murder, two years later. Gazzara moved to TV after failing to find adequate movie roles and, since his role as Leon Uris' counterpart in QB VII, has favored off-beat roles, including a bisexual villain in Road House (1989) and dysfunctional characters in Buffalo '66, Happiness and The Big Lebowski (all 1998). He has appeared in over 120 films and TV shows
